These three are from a single morning taking photos, which started out looking for birds to take photos of and ended up being a landscape and sunrise photo shoot. The lake I went to for the birds just happened to be dead calm with a nice layer of fog lingering over the top of it. As the sun came up the sky became alive with colors, which I will share in a later post, and reflected beautifully off of the water. I ended up taking roughly 80 different shots that morning and will share more of the other photos over the next few posts of mine. I kind of felt like a mad man snapping away. I know they aren't Hawaiian but, hey I kinda like Kansas's big sky.

Well sort of. This is a shot of the solar eclipse yesterday. I thought I was going to miss out but as the eclipse started the clouds broke. Kind of glad they stuck around to add a little texture to the shot. I used a ND1000 filter to prevent damage to the camera's sensor and to be able to see the eclipse. I also didn't keep my camera pointed at the sun very long to make sure I wasn't going to do any damage. This was at the beginning of the eclipse the clouds returned before it was at its peak so this is the only good shot I got.

I have a friend leaving tomorrow for a two week stay on Maui so I thought I would send her off with a preview of the island's charm.
You know it doesn't take much for me to dig into the Hawai'i files...
Or start to think about what I might photograph the next time I'm there...
And then reality sets in and I have to go back to work!

Actually the boat is on auto pilot mode. Soon after this shot, we got flagged down by the French coast guard for not putting up the French flag instead of our Texas flag, and drinking while operating the vessel. No fine nor anyone got arrested for this! I just drank out from a cup after that,

Amidst the chaos of this summer my wife and I went back and forth about moving to Maui and living out the rest of our lives there. At one point we had decided to make the move and then we changed our minds and then we changed again and on and on until we finally decided that because of family and some other minor things we were destined to be mainlanders for another decade or two.
With that in mind we found a new house in Kansas that gave us the room that we wanted/needed and the comfort of a home in the country, away from the hussle and bussle of the city. We've been here about three weeks now and even though the move almost killed me I'm glad we made the move. Never again though. If we do go to Maui we will sell everything but my cameras and go.
This photo is from our living room looking out at the early morning sunrise with a little fog on the prairie.
